Domestic violence affects thousands of women and young teenage girls each year. Why do so many women live with it, instead of moving out and getting help?
When domestic violence occurs, in many cases people will say, “What did she do to make him so angry?” Whatever the situation maybe, no one deserves to be beaten, kicked, or choked. But domestic violence is not just physical; it can be mental.
We should think before we act, because violence can show up in the best of us. It affects the young and the old, black or white, as well as the rich and the poor. Domestic violence does not discriminate.
Yes, thousands of women are being abused each year by their boyfriends and spouses, but what about men? Although many of them will never reveal that they have experienced abuse from their female counterparts, it does exist. Violence is never acceptable, whether from male or female.
If you are being abused, remove yourself from the situation and get help now, because your life is at stake.
